Giveaway Winner
I decided to give away one $20 gift card to either Barnes & Noble or Book Depository. Carrie of The Lion is a Bookworm was randomly selected as the winner. Congratulations, Carrie!

Thank you all again for joining me this past weekend for a fun few days of reading! I’ll probably host this again in the fall (possibly Labor Day weekend) and be more organized with it. Let me know if you’d be interested and I’ll make it happen.

How many books/pages did you read for #TBYSReadathon?

  2. I didn’t even finish the book I picked up, but I read 300 pages of it. Like louloureads said above, I probably wouldn’t have read at all without the readathon, so I consider it a success! I’d love it if you host again. Next time I won’t read non-fiction (as enthralling as I found my book, I just can’t read nonfiction quickly)! Thanks for hosting my first readathon!

  3. I’m so impressed with your total! I got through two books (The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams and Lily’s Crossing by Patricia Reilly Giff) and 431 pages. Both were titles on #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks and gave me a strong May finish. Thank you for hosting this Readathon!
